call your dealer about the middle of july, and they should be able to give you an approximate arrival date.

According to the "tentative" Lexus model launch calendar, the 1st day of production for the 2002 is 7/2/01, with shipments to dealers scheduled to begin on 7/31/01. This document I have also shows a date of 8/1/01 for pricing announcements to dealers.
Here's some other info I have that may or may not be news to most here...
New Options for the 2002:
Full leather vs. escaine, navigation, VSC(auto only)
New standard equip for the 2002:
Front armrest, EC rearview mirror w/compass, 9 speaker stereo with woofer(Sportcross only)
New colors:
Electric Green, Gold Metallic, Absolutely Red, Crystal White, Dark Blue Metallic

Also noted: TRD is currently developing parts (suspension kit, body kit, wheels, etc.) for a proposed IS L-Tuned package as a DIO. No proposed date for availability.

Again, I know this is repeat info for some, but I thought I'd post it as a refresher.

Is it me or something is not right about Lexus's Engineers?? How come the '02 SportCross will get the 9 speakers with woofer BUT the sport Sedan is NOT.???

I don't get it, the last time I see some body driven a wagon is have to be atleast in their mid fifty (who doesn't need a woofer) !!!
Other than that, Crystal white exterior with Fully tan leather interior, plus VSC on 17" Graphite wheel should work for me. Let's keep it that way....

I can scan the doc., but I will include all the info below from it. I received it from a Lexus dealer. Again these are all tentative model launch dates are could change at any time....
First day of production 7/02/01
First departure (TVA's)
Jacksonville Port 7/11/01
Newark Port 7/11/01
Portland Port 7/10/01
Long Beach Port 7/10/01
1st Arrivals M.Y. 2001
Jacksonville Port 8/05/01
Newark Port 8/08/01
Portland Port 7/21/01
Long Beach Port 7/24/01
Pricing Announcement-Dlrs 8/01/01
Tender/QAd
Jacksonville Port 8/08/01
Newark Port 8/11/01
Portland Port 7/24/01
Long Beach Port 7/27/01
Ship Regular production to Dlrs 7/31/01
Wholesale date-East Coast 8/12/01
Wholesale date-West Coast 7/25/01
Retail date 7/26/01
Again, I wouldn't take anything for fact until you can get an official delivery date from a dealer. However, from this info, I would say it is a safe bet to assume that you should be able to take delivery in the first part of August. FYI- these dates do not include the SportCross. Those appear to be arriving shortly after the 2002 sedans.

Whadaya mean? My MOM (age 69) likes her LOUD music (OK mostly German Oompah & Mexican Mariachis). Fortunately, my father is an electronics person. You should see the system he put in her 1966 230S Mercedes...(now a "302" with a Ford engine), fire-engine red, gold stars & numbers, wire wheels and lotsa chrome.
